'Armour' from RayR: Engineer



Only my second entry into this years Challenge, its been a very slow start. Booo!

I've gotta admit to being stumped at most of the Bonus rounds this year, As you may well be aware I try and fit the Bonus rounds to my available figures, sometimes really stretching the rules.




But with this round I knew the figure I'd be using..
He's a Dixon mini, from their Grand Alliance range and represents a 1680-90's Engineer Officer fully kitted out with helmet and breastplate, he's holding the plans for one of the forts built outside Tangiers in the 1680's that he's gotta build. Poor chap! I suppose he really should be painted in civilian clothes, but I've chosen the uniform of the Governors regt, later Kirkes's Lambs.
